The artistic drive to leave the studio and collect inspiration, impressions and ideas directly from nature is featured in this new exhibition. Drawn from works rarely seen at the Biggs Museum, the exhibition tracks the influence of plein air painting in the United States, particularly in Delaware, with a focus on the museum’s extensive Barbizon, Tonalist and Impressionist collections. Over 100 years of paintings connected by the plein air tradition will be brought together in this comprehensive exhibition.
